It depends, as long as the Opteron is made for the same socket it will run in a consumer board as well. I believe sdlvx is probably referring to owning the legendary Opteron 165. It was one of my first processors too and I ran it in a DFI NF4Ultra board for a while, then a DFI UltraSLI, then a DFI CFX-3200 (still the best board I have ever used in my life), and finally in an ASUS A8N32-SLI board when I fried my DFI. That was the CPU, along with my CFX3200, that I even set a world record on for air overclocking as well as hyper-transport OC.

AMD has a history of packaging Opterons in desktop socket configurations. It was only the more recent stuff that servers were only available on their dedicated server socket boards.

Those Opterons are obsolete and those motherboards have not been in productions for years. His point was misleading at best.

My point is that AMD has done it in the past.

The other point, which I haven't made yet, is that AMD is spreading their chips around as much as possible.

APU in server, desktop, laptop. All the same chip.

Small x86 embedded, laptop, tablet, very small form factor desktop. All the same chip

It's the direction AMD has been heading in after dividing everything up so much with Llano/FX/Opteron.

It also completely aligns with statements AMD has made like "leveraging IP better" and spreading their product lines.

However don't you dare talk smack about Opteron 165. The chip was legendary and you have no idea how many tears of Intel fanboys who wouldn't overclock I've drank when my $100 Opteron 165 @ 2.9ghz beat their stock E6600s they spent $300+ on.








Those were really great times, because all the Intel fanboys were running around going "LOL AMD IS DEAD" and I was going, "how's your stock E6600? This CPU cost me $99!"

I still use that rig to this day. It's running Debian right now, for nefarious purposes, at 2.7ghz. I also retro-fit a Noctua u12p into the socket by making my own custom mount for it.

So I guess what I"m getting at, is don't mock a golden era chip. The same golden era where you could buy an Opteron chip and put in a consumer motherboard and OC it.

I have two Opteron 165's. They were in some kind of server board I ditched. Are their any enthusiast boards where I could try to overclock them?
post #2744 of 3492
Well this was a rather coy response I was not expecting. Possible but not likely seems to be the word.

If they are socket 939's then yes there are lots of good old boards to oc them on.

They are socket 939. Asus, Gigabyte? Would I be looking at things like robust vrm's and phase power in the board as we do for Piledriver 6 and 8 core cpu's?
post #2747 of 3492
Forgot to mention I would love a dual socket enthusiast board to try and OC. Do they exist?
post #2748 of 3492
Only for Intel and even then only for Xeons. AMD has none as far as I know and Steamroller ain't getting one. Kaveri is supposed to reduce latency and dual-sockets do the opposite. Maybe Carrizo or Basilisk.

You would be looking for some DFI NF4 boards to overclock those Opteron's with. They had what is now considered standard bios options way back when it was a rarity to have good OC options in the bios. They are also built for overclocking and have heatsinks on the VRMs which most boards did not do back then. I believe the CPU is also supplied off the 5v rail on at least some DFI boards which allows for higher voltage to go to the CPU. If you cannot find a good DFI board then an ASUS A8N32-SLI would probably be the way to go.
